Dental implants offer some unique benefits for those with missing teeth.
Tooth loss was the last thing you thought you would have to deal with as an adult. Unfortunately, this is something that happens to millions of Americans. While the goal is to maintain good oral health to protect your natural teeth, when tooth loss happens it’s important that you have someone like our Fargo, ND, dentists Dr. Jon Anderson, Dr. Brad Anderson, and Dr. Breding that you can turn to for treatment. Find out why so many people are turning to dental implants to replace their missing teeth.
Looks and Functions Like a Real Tooth
You want to be able to replace your missing tooth or teeth with something that resembles the look and function of a real tooth. Dental implants are truly the closest you can come to a natural tooth, as they both look and function just like the real thing. After all, an implant is designed to replace your missing tooth roots, which makes them unique from other tooth replacement options.
We also know how important it is to have a full, healthy smile for as long as possible. With other tooth replacement options, you’ll have to replace them every few years; however, this isn’t the case with implants. Once we do a consultation and develop a treatment plan, we refer you to a specialist to place the dental implant.
Once the implant is placed within the jawbone this is where it will stay permanently. Implants have a very high success rate and can remain strong and healthy for the rest of your life, if you maintain good oral hygiene and care for your implant properly.
Protect Your Jawbone
One complication of untreated tooth loss is bone loss. This is something that will happen over time and the only tooth replacement that can prevent bone loss is a dental implant. This is because the implant actually takes the place of your missing tooth’s roots. The implant then provides the jawbone with the stimulation that it needs to stay healthy and strong.
Prevent a Misaligned Smile
If you don’t replace your missing tooth or teeth, eventually the rest of your teeth will begin to move toward the open gap or gaps in your smile. As you might imagine, this can lead to crookedness, crowding, twisted teeth and gaps between teeth. When this happens, the only way to correct the misalignment is to get braces. Luckily, by turning to our Fargo, ND, general dentists to replace your missing teeth you can prevent this from happening to your smile.
